Ford GT To Start at $400k, Capped at 250 Units Annually

When the Ford GT first made its surprise debut at the 2015 North American International Auto Show back in January, Ford executives hinted that the car could feature a price tag of over $100,000, as well as a limited production run. However, if a new report is to be believed in its entirety, then both figures are far more extreme than first thought, which could combine to make the Ford GT one of the rarest supercars on the road when it eventually goes into full-scale production.

This possibility was raised at the GT's European introduction when Raj Nair, Ford's Global Product Development chief, revealed that the GT would sell at a price point that is equivalent with the Lamborghini Aventador, which means that not only will the GT feature an MSRP that has doubled since its initial debut, it's an MSRP that would surpass $400,000 when fully equipped. It was initially thought that the GT would feature a $200,000 MSRP which would have allowed it to compete with rivials such as the Lamborghini Huracan as well as the Ferrari 488 GTB. In addition, this is in stark contrast to the 2004-2006 Ford GT which boasted a lower $150,000 base price when it was first introduced to buyers.

A key part of that lofty price point is its high level of exclusivity. Whereas the company produced 1,500 examples of the previous generation GT during each of its years in production, Ford is expected to flip the script with this revamped GT and cap production at an annual rate of 250 units to place it among the rarest entries in its already rarefied segment. Look for final pricing and production figure information to be released closer to the GT's official on-sale date next year. However, this news should spur buyers and potential owners to change their ordering plans for the GT and be prepared to be quick and decisive with their pre-ordering moves when they visit their local Ford showroom.

I understand that the car will be really, really rare, but I just don't know that I could ever consider spending that much money on a car.
